The Blue City

by Susan Abbott

I'm back working in my studio on my Vermont landscape series, but before I return to posting those New England compositions again, here's one more plein air painting from my trip to India. I was using the ramparts of an ancient fort as my easel, and looking over towards the "Blue City" of Jodphur. The man walking in the foreground towards me appeared at the last minute, and his addition in the composition gave some sense of scale to this vast, empty valley.
